Publishing Catalogues and the VO

At Melbourne University we have some catalogues in text file format which we would like users to be able to access. The principle catalogues HIPASS and SUMSS data.


The HI Parkes All Sky Survey (HIPASS) is a survey for neutral atomic Hydrogen over the entire sky south of declination +25 degrees.

The user interface for a catalogue search is very important! It's quite hard to implement (very fiddly) because the web page is dynamic yet it need to be generic too.

In 2003, we have a number of survey-class datasets which will be prepared for inclusion in the Australian Virtual Observatory.
